VentureOut was proud and excited to host the 2017 edition of the Austrian Pitching Days, a 1-week program designed to help immerse a promising delegation of Austrian technology companies into the NY Tech community.
The focus for this edition was on innovative start-up teams from Austria in the fields of FinTech, Life Science, Biotech & Health, Energy Technology, New Materials & Process Engineering. The startup selected were the following.
The Junge Wirtschaft, the Austrian economy and AWS – i2 Business Angels Austria invited up to ten selected Austrian start-ups to take advantage of their opportunity to inspire US and international investors for their business ideas and to conclude international investments in New York. We were happy to power the program in NYC for them.
One-Week Accelerator Program:
Our one-week hyper accelerator is an opportunity for the most promising early-stage technology companies abroad to become immersed in the tech community of New York, meeting with leading U.S. startups, corporations, and venture investors. We empower our international entrepreneurs with the education, resources and connections needed to successfully raise capital and launch their business in the U.S. market.

The pitch night is the capstone of every VentureOut Program. We started with networking, cocktails, and hors-d’oeuvres. Following a round of introductions, each startup pitched for 3 minutes and received feedback from each investor on the panel. The night was capped off with more networking and refreshments.
